Former featherweight title challenger Felicia Spencer will welcome Danyelle Wolf to the Octagon at a UFC event on May 22.
BJPenn.com was first to report that both Spencer and Wolf have verbally agreed to the bout. The UFC Fight Night card does not yet have an official headliner or location.
Spencer returns to action for the first time since losing a five-round decision to Amanda Nunes in a 145-pound championship clash at UFC 250 last June. A former Invicta FC title holder, Spencer is 2-2 in the Las Vegas-based promotion, with first-round finishes of Megan Anderson and Zarah Fairn dos Santos to her credit.
Wolf, 37, earned a UFC contract after taking a unanimous verdict against Taneisha Tennant in her professional MMA debut at Dana White’s Contender Series on Sept. 15. The Tiger Muay Thai export is a three-time U.S. National Boxing champion who has compiled an amateur record of 30-14, according to BoxRec.com.
